Influence of Globalisation on Project Delivery and Organisational Performance
The study is an empirical analysis of the influence of globalization on project delivery and organisational performance. This is borne out of the problem that globalization is an ambivalent concept and process with its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) or with costs, benefits and burdens. The objectives of the study are to examine the significant influence of economic liberation on project delivery and organisational performance; to examine the significant influence of technological innovation on organizational performance and project delivery. Being an empirical development research, the survey research design involving the collection, collation and use of primary and secondary data from a representative sample population of 150 (one hundred and fifty) respondents was used. Descriptive and inferential statistics with the aid of the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) were used in data presentation, analysis and test of hypotheses in which all null hypotheses were rejected in favour of the alternate hypotheses which were accepted. Based on the findings, the following recommendations were made; in the opening of economic borders and removal of trade barriers, nation’s economic flows should be increased to enable firm’s increase their productivity and efficiency and Company management should try to devise strategies to fulfill consumer perspective to survive in competitive market.
